My condolences goes to those that have lost someone.

According to Norwegian news media. It's the 4th time a collision between a US Navy ship and a another vessel, in Asia region... this year!

There are thousand questions, who was wrong, with the Fitzgerald knowledge, where both ship commander was "removed"... you start to ask question about what the US Navy are doing.

one question I have, is: are they operating with there transponder of. making them impossible to detect, while traveling trough a heavy trafficked area, that are just 2.5 km wide, at the smallest. How was on watch duty with binoculars. if it was dark... there are equipment for that, are the equipped for that at all.
